Faculty & Accreditation | Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference

Faculty & Accreditation | Plant-based Nutrition Healthcare Conference: 100 million Americans have diabetes or pre-diabetes. Why? We’re putting into our bodies foods that our bodies are not designed for. When we consume plant-based foods, our bodies begin to recover. We now understand how to prevent and reverse disease.

A No-Cook Black Bean Dish for All Summer Long | Shine Food - Yahoo! Shine



A No-Cook Black Bean Dish for All Summer Long | Shine Food - Yahoo! Shine: A No-Cook Black Bean Dish for All Summer Long
When it comes to ripe Summer produce, I prefer to do as little as possible in the kitchen: the flavor and texture of the ingredients are already exceptional, so why would you want to cook them to a mushy pulp or overseason them with spices? This black bean salad has plenty of crunch and texture with a slight sweetness from the orange juice. Serve it as a salad, top it over greens, or scoop it onto chips like a salsa. Anything goes!
